The Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio Spurs meet Tuesday in NBA action at the Frost Bank Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Dallas Mavericks vs San Antonio Spurs prediction.

Dallas Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks are starting to heat up again as they’ve reeled off five wins in their past six outings and they will be eager to stay hot after sneaking past the Nuggets in a thrilling 107-105 home win on Sunday. Luka Doncic led the team with 37 points, 10 rebounds and three assists, Kyrie Irving added 24 points with seven rebounds and nine assists while Dereck Lively chipped in with 14 points off the bench but no other player finished in double figures in scoring. As a team, the Mavericks shot just 42 percent from the field and nine of 35 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in trouble when they trailed by three points with just 26 seconds left on the clock, before Doncic drained a 3-pointer to tie the game. The game looked like it was headed to overtime before Irving drained the game-winning left handed shot to sink the Nuggets at the buzzer.

San Antonio Spurs

Meanwhile, the San Antonio Spurs have been in a real funk as they’ve lost five of their last seven games overall, but they will be feeling pretty good after snapping a three-game skid with a 122-115 overtime win over the Nets on Sunday. Victor Wembenyama led the team with 33 points, 15 rebounds, seven assists and seven blocks, Devin Vassell added 25 points with eight assists while Keldon Johnson chipped in with 24 points on eight of 12 shooting off the bench. As a team, the Spurs shot 46 percent from the field and nine of 37 from the 3-point line as they clawed their way back from an 11-point deficit, before they played great defense to hold the Nets to just five points in overtime to come away with the unlikely victory at home.

Dallas Mavericks vs San Antonio Spurs prediction

The Mavericks could be a little shorthanded here with Josh Green still out and Luka Doncic listed as questionable, while the Spurs are still missing Charles Bassey. The Mavericks are obviously a much weaker team when Doncic isn’t able to suit up. However, the Mavs are currently enjoying one of their best runs of the season. I think the Mavs can take the momentum from their last win into this meeting. The line is short for this one, so it’s just too hard to go past this streaking Mavericks team to stay hot with another win and cover over. This Spurs team with little to play for at this stage of the season.
